5 Things You Need To Know In Pop Culture Today! (Sept. 29)

Here's a rundown of what's in the Pop Culture news this morning, corralled and curated for your viewing pleasure!

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel In Couples Therapy

The bromance between Jimmy and Matt hit the rocks, apparently when they needed to go to Couples Therapy. Just watch:


Ryan Murphy Calls Lady Gaga A Perfectionist

Ryan Murphy absolutely loves Lady Gaga and is thoroughly enjoying his time with her, and he wants to make sure she comes back for more. E! interviewed Murphy, and illustrating that Gaga is super terrifying but super amazing at the same time. "If she has a scene to shoot, she's up at the crack of dawn not just working on the look of it, but the acting of it. She's so committed, and yet she's so funny. She's the biggest perfectionist, which I have loved."


Check out this little snippet of the cast talking about this new season below:


Trevor Noah Nailed His First Daily Show

Rave reviews are coming in for Trevor Noah's first show. E! did an entire post on his best jokes. Here's a few, and check out the premiere over at Comedy Central.

"Jon Stewart was more than just a late night host. He was often our voice, our refuge, and in many ways, our political dad, and now it's weird, because dad has left. And now, it feels like the family has a new step dad, and he's black, which is not ideal."

"It turns out that Comedy Central did ask women to host, and the women they asked turned the job down, because they all had better things to do and clearly knew something I didn't. Also, why didn't they get an American to host? Again, Comedy Central tried, and those people also declined. So once more, a job Americans rejected is now being done by an immigrant."

Something tells me he's going to do JUST FINE!


Kim Zolciak and Tony Dovoalni Get Booted From DWTS Due To Kim's Stroke

Apparently nobody warned Kim that if she didn't show up, she'd have to step down. Tom Bergeron shared that "This is a very unusual circumstance. It's still a competition. The rules state, and these are rules we've had since 2005 when we started the show, and I'm quoting form them, 'In the instance of illness or other health-related matters affecting a participants ability to participate in the game, they must withdraw." Between her and Tony, they seemed very upset. Now people are tweeting out #BringBackKimAndTony, and hoping the outcries will help.
